    This kid is great, wearing the same shirt the day he returned to school. And fuck the teacher... if they cared more about educating children instead of indoctrinating them, they would have has a discussion about the shirt and our rights in class.

    I agree, the teacher is clearly starved for attention.

    The teacher and the cops should be arrested for violating his First Amendment rights.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan.
    *sigh* C'mon AH, you know that students on campus don't have first amendment rights. No more than they would with their parents under their own roof. The teacher is a cunt, but this is not a 1st amendment rights issue.

    The only issue comes if there is a policy that is not enforced evenly.

    I, of course, agree with the student's point of view, but students are there to shut the fuck up and learn, not be political billboards.

    Being that there wasn't a policy against political t-shirts, the teacher should have kept her mouth shut. Would the kid have been told to take it off if he was wearing this shirt?

    That doesn't cover what a school could consider "disruptive" speech. Subsequent court rulings have disallowed disruptive free speech.

    Although the "disruption" was clearly the teacher's instigation, it still wouldn't be fully protected speech because there was a disruption. But since there was no ban on political speech T-shirts, they shouldn't have suspended him. A kid can get suspended for making a Poptart into a gun shape these days for Christ's sake...

    The only disruption was caused by the teacher. The shirt didn't advocate illegal activity and wasn't obscene. Those are the only exceptions to Tinker. If these parents push the issue, that school and police department are going to be in a world of shit.

    in 2001, you could engage a teacher in a debate of this manner and it would be an excellent argument, one both parties learn from. i really do blame the react first and don't think way of thinking the 24 hour biased on all sides news networks and their opinions passed off as news shows.

    some kids were, but they weren't catered to. it was amazing. even the gay kids didn't make a stink about the school's dumb rule. they just went with friends and the chaperones didn't care who did what there.

    Except courts and school boards have repeatedly said that any shirt they find "disruptive to the learning environment" can be banned. A while I don't think this counts, it may be close enough to keep them off the hook.

    There needs to be a case to test that. This may be the case.

    It doesn't matter what the school and teacher claim. The teacher was upset and had him arrested purely because he didn't like the political message. That's why it's a clear First Amendment violation, and that's why the school and the cops are fucked.

    Which is a ridiculous stance. The reaction is the distraction, and that's what should be addressed. The kid was just going about his day wearing his shirt... the people who disagreed with it are the ones that elevated the situation, and those are who should be addressed.

    Instead of teaching children than many people have different opinions and that's part of life, you're teaching them that it's just better to silence those other opinions, and the best way to do that is to act outraged and overreact. These kids grow up to be the people who attack comedians for what they say, who try to drown out any voice they don't agree with (like the redheaded cunt in the Women thread), etc.
